Smooth Scottish Fox Terrier Breed Maintenance
Depending on the hair type of your Smooth Scottish Fox Terrier, he is either a low to moderate maintenance breed. If you have the short haired version, all you need to do is brush a couple of times a month with a slicker brush and trim his nails to keep the paws healthy. For the longer haired version, grooming can get a bit more complicated. A more sophisticated and clean look will require professional grooming or skill with a clipper at home. The Scottie has a classic beard and skirt cut that people everywhere love, and if your Smooth Scottish Fox Terrier takes after this coat type, you may want to have a similar look. Otherwise, the hair can be kept long all over for a more casual and natural appearance. This type of fur needs to be brushed weekly with a pin brush and trimmed with scissors if it gets too long around the paws. Trimming the nails is also suggested a couple times a month. Bathing, for both fur types, is only needed when especially dirty as the Smooth Scottish Fox Terrier will not inherit a bad doggy smell from either parent breed.
